"Take note, filmmakers: you don’t need to be watching a feature film to have your pants up around your neck in fear. The Last Time I Saw Richard, unerringly directed by Nicholas Verso, is superbly edited with sound design and cinematography to match. It is a lush, deeply textured narrative set in a mental institution. The two leads (Toby Wallace and Cody Fern) dance around one another in games of basketball, Connect-4, and razor blades. One might be disturbed, but what the other guy has is far, far worse. Utterly chilling." - SImon Bossell, MEGAPHONE
"This 22min short directed and written by Nicholas Verso is a superb supernatural film of epic proportions. It has echoes of The Ring and honestly has an equivalent in production values. To win a film award everything must align and be perfect in every way and this film did. It suits my tastes in the unusual and darkness and the cinematography of Stefan Duscio is literally stunning. The special effects are stellar and the acting by Toby Wallace is enough for this film to win on its own." - Jason King, SALTY POPCORN
